    It trades ~3 on the TSE, so a 5% discount, but as HBM is $10 now and under $9.50 a week ago, by the time somebody purchased now, had shares settled, tendered their shares, had HBM shares settle, then deal with dilution of HBM from everybody else tendering, then dealing with the tax hassle, that 5% could disappear fast. Been long HBM a while, but it's time to give it a rest and sell.
